THAT FIRST DAY . . . 

. . . you said goodbye to your parents and held 
your head high and tried to smile as you brushed 
away the tears . . . and when you said the first shy 
hello to your new roommate you saw that she too 
had been crying and you both laughed . . . then 
you went together to the unfamiliar room that was 
to be your home for nine months. Soon the un- 
familiar would disappear and girls you had never 
known would become your friends and you would 
never forget some of them. . . .

BEFORE MANY DAYS HAD PASSED . . . 
. . . what first had been only a group of students 
became a student body, united in spirit and pur- 
pose . . . and you marvelled at the wonder of it all 
and felt proud to be a part of this student body, 
this Gulf Park College — your school now. And as 
you began to learn from your teachers, you learned 
about them too. They were great because they did 
more than teach. They cared for you and became 
friends who shared vour hopes and dreams. 



eee 




AND YOU REMEMBER . . . 
. . . playing on the beach . . . the demerits you 
received for your messy room . . . waiting for him 
to call . . . checking your mailbox three times a 
day, even on Sunday . . . that "surprise" birthday 
party in the dorm . . . your first date at Gulf Park 
. . . ordering out from Mr. Jack's . . . wishing you 
had a car . . . wishing you didn't have a telephone 
after seeing the bill at the end of the month . . . 




HOW COULD YOU FORGET . . . 
. . . Rat Day meant authority for sophomores and 
humiliation for freshmen pledges. You discovered 
interesting and different activities around you. You 
joined new clubs and gave a little more of yourself 
each day. You learned to appreciate your friends' 
talents as well as your own. You belonged.

THOSE WERE THE DAYS . . . 
. . . the glorious weekends that were all yours to 
do what you wished. You buried your books in the 
closet, slept 'til noon, rode the 25 cent bus to the 
Mall, walked to Long Beach with a friend, and 
played football on Sunday afternoon. H you didn't 
have a date, you watched the late show, the late, 
late show, then hung out the window to spy on 
the dates.

NOW THAT IT'S OVER . . . 
. . . you realize even more that you were a part of 
Gulf Park and without you it would have been dif- 
ferent. Although "your bags are packed and you're 
ready to go," a part of you will linger here forever. 
"Though nothing can bring back the hour of 

splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower; 
We will grieve not, rather find 
Strength in what remains behind."

Dedication 



THE FRIENDSHIP OAK 

Other trees may lift their heads 

To kiss the heaven's blue. 
May reach with straining arms to 
touch 

The clouds a-sailing through, 
May shelter give to eaglets young. 

Whose home's an aerie high. 
And toss their bough in ecstacy 

When storms go driving by. 

But give to me the spreading oak 

That shelters close the ground. 
That makes a spot of welcome 
shade 

Where rest and peace are found. 
That covers safe the living things 

That dare not reach the heights. 
And whispers summer lullabies 

On quiet moonlit nights. 

Whose spreading arch curves 
overhead 

Like a vast cathedral dome, 
And mosses hang for drapery 

About the song bird's home. 
Whose gnarled arms holds in their 
clasp 

A maiden's high retreat. 
And girlish song and laughter 

The whispering leaves repeat. 

Give me the oaks that stand today 
Where old campfires are dead, 
That heard the love tales of the 
past 
To Indian maidens said. 
That keep the councils of the 
chiefs 
When chiefs were brave and 
bold. 
That speak to you in every breeze. 
But age-long secrets hold. 
L.D.H.

President's Message 



"This has been an exciting and interesting year 
at Gulf Park. In restrospect. it has been#''a year of 
change and challenge for students and faculty alike. 
In many areas more was accomplished than had 
been anticipated ; in other areas less than was hoped 
for. This is the nature of education; this is the 
reality of adult life." 




^.

Academic Dean 



"Happiness for an educator, a parent or a con- 
cerned fellow citizen of the world can be merely a 
realization that the succeeding generation has un- 
selfishly assumed a posture of accountability of re- 
lating rights to obligations. A significant number 
of Gulf Park students and faculty stand tall in this 
regard." 



It 




Dean of Women 



"The transition from adolescent to mature young 
adult is no more in evidence than in the young 
person's acceptance of personal responsibility for 
improvement of his own environment. Acceptance 
of responsibility implies acceptance of human prob- 
lems and willingness to work toward huoian resolu- 
tions of those problems. Such development is evi- 
dent at Gulf Park College." 




^3 



Assistant Dean of Women 



"Working with you is always a rewarding ex- 
perience for me. You are delightful and just like a 
package from home — 'full of surprises.' May you 
always remember Gulf Park and may I take this 
opportunity to wish each and every one of you the 
best of luck and the happiest future possible."

Admissions Director 



" 'In my garden of memories' are the closing 
words of a song which was popular a long time 
ago. Each of us has a garden of memories. What 
grows in that garden depends upon what we have 
planted. Bramble seed produce brambles; flower 
seed produce flowers. My hope is that the corner of 
your garden which contains your Gulf Park memo- 
ries will be the prettiest nook of all."

Business Manager 

"We approach the end of another school year 
with mixed emotions. To our sophomores who will 
be leaving us, it is our fondest hope that your years 
at Gulf Park and the associations and friendships 
you have made will remain with you. To our 
freshmen, we look forward to your return as part 
of the Fiftieth Anniversary Class and all that it 
can bring to you and to Gulf Park." 



Auditor 



"It is a privilege for me to be connected with 
an educational institution such as Gulf Park. For 
the past year I have observed you, the young 
women of Gulf Park, and wish to congratulate each 
of you for the fine record that you have made for 
yourselves."

Panhellehic Council 

The Panhellenic Council of Gulf Park, composed 
of the six sorority presidents and sponsored by

out the year. A formal reception set the stage for 
rush week and pledges were accepted into the so- 
rorities in October. 

Thanksgiving food baskets were provided for 
needy families, and before Christmas all six sorori- 



ties participated in a Christmas party for under- 
privileged children in the area. A Christmas dance 
and breakfast was held for Gulf Park students and 
their dates during the Yuletide season also. 

Inter-sorority athletic competition included vol- 
leyball, bowling and tennis. Sororities also vied 
for top honors in scrapbooks and also in the annual

Student Government 



Student Government represents the students in 
academic and social affairs of the college. This or- 
ganization strives to promote good citizenship on 
and off campus and enforces school regulations. 
Working with President's Advisory Council, Stu- 
dent Government accomplishes changes of school 
policies. Under the leadership of Robin MacDonald 
and advisor Dean Audrey Cullen, proposals are 
made to the President's Council. This year many 
activities took place, such as a Student Government 
Day assembly, numerous teas, and rule changes. 
The goals of Student Government are closer student- 
administration relationships and greater unity 
among the student body.

Judiciary Board 

Composed of the president and vice president of 
each of the three dormitories, Gulf Park's Judiciary 
Board reviews cases of minor infractions of the 
rules of the handbook and decides the punishment 
if students are found guilty of violations. Dean 
Audrey Cullen sponsors the Board and Wanda 
Wheeler, vice president of the student body, serves 
as moderator for a committee of six. These girls 
bear a great responsibility and have performed 
their duties well for the 1970-71 school year.

Welcoming Committee 



Composed of several returning Gulf Park sopho- 
mores, the Welcoming Committee assumed the re- 
sponsibility of orienting new students, showing 
them around campus and introducing them to other 
students and faculty. This organization boasted a 
distinction shared by no other club, for they were 
the first to arrive on campus in early September. 
The responsibilities existed throughout the year, 
however, as these girls were always on call to lend 
a helping hand to their fellow students.

requires a certain grade point average of all mem- 
bers, is Phi Theta Kappa, headed by Dr. David 
Pierce. Bill Gordon, national PTK president, of 
Perkinston. Miss., was the guest speaker at the 
first initiation of new members in October. Mem- 
bers attended the state convention in Booneville, 
Miss., and the national convention in Biloxi. Miss. 
Other fun activities included making a scrapbook, 
cooking out at Huckleberry Hill, and selling Chris- 
mas cards.

Sea Gull 



The creation of a never-to-be-forgotten 1971 Sea 
Gull as a faithful representation of this year at 
Gulf Park was the goal of the Sea Gull staff. 
Scheduling class pictures, finding lost photographs, 
and meeting those deadly deadlines were just a 
few of the headaches of Daisy Williams, editor, and 
Barbie Baker, assistant editor. With the help and 
photography skill of advisor Winfred Moncrief, the 
Gulf Park students who comprised the yearbook 
staff have endeavored to reconstruct the year in 
pictures and comments. We hope you like it!

Coast Club 



A new constitution, participation in Gulf Park 
Day at the Edgewater Mall, and parties at Huckle- 
berry Hill were activities for the 1970-71 Coast 
Club, an organization of the day students on the 
campus. Members decorated their Coast Club room 
with collages, flowers, and homemade pillows. The 
club also organized a Coast Alumnae Club, invit- 
ing alumnae living on the Coast to joint in college 
activities.

Tides 



Reporting the events happening on campus to the 
Gulf Park students and faculty is the idea behind 
The Tides. With the help of a hard-working staff 
under the editorship of Vicky Carter and advice of 
sponsor Winfred Moncrief, The Tides was pub- 
lished and distributed monthly. 

Through editorials, guest columns, feature 
articles from around the world, and up-to-date 
school news. The Tides brought to its readers a 
candid look at the campus and the community.

The Tammy Howl is one of Gulf Park's most 
valuable publications, since it is the most widely 
distributed of them all. Produced semi-annually, 
the Tammy contains up-to-date alumnae informa- 
tion as well as current campus news. Mailed to 
nearly all of Gulf Park's alumnae, the Tammy is a 
valuable publicity tool for the college. Under the 
leadership of Winfred Moncrief, this year Tammy 
staff has produced two excellent publications, both 
worthy of great praise.

And may the gleam of heaven shine in your heart
